We just got a pair of these Skora Form Running Shoes in the mail in Natural/Black/Red just in time for a 5k race. Skora Form Running Shoes come in a fancy box (the type that has a magnet built-in on the flap) and boast the same expensive/sporty look you'd expect from $195 shoes.
"The FORM has a full leather upper that features Pittards Armor-Tan Goatskin leather with Pittards WR100X Sheepskin leather lining. It is designed with asymmetric lacing and no-tongue construction to provide a glove-like fit and premium performance.
"FORM is built on the R01 platform composed of the REALFIT last, developed to offer a unique anatomical fit that closely matches the foot's shape. The R01 platform also features a zero-drop outsole/midsole with minimal cushioning and a curved section profile in both the forefoot and heel. This allows for optimal natural movement and performance."
I really liked the fact that the heel is adjustable with a velcro strap because it's very annoying when you have that extra inch in the back that is loose especially before a big race. The shoes are very lightweight and come in at 8.2oz/235g which is great for making it that last mile. Also, the laces have a lot of texture and don't untie very easily. I really enjoyed running in them and think these are all-around great shoes made from the highest quality components.
